ABSOLUTELY STUNNING GORGEOUS!!!

This reminds me of a tropical version of fracas. I have the touchtip perfume which I think might be pure perfume because it's so insane potent!

Before reviewing notes, what came to my mind as I sniffed this , is fracas tuberose , jasmine , gardenia , anything else is a nuance. lovely, almost as modern as fracas, a gorgeous pronounced amber

Reminds me of a stormy dark tropical island resort

I have a 1/4 oz of the skin perfume circa 1950's. My word, this is one potent heady brew, and that's a serious understatement. Strong perfumes are like manna to me, but this one is down right terrifying.

The only way that I have been able to enjoy it is as an additive to my two other Gardenia fragrances.This gives those other scents more intensity and greater lasting power.

Honestly, the Tuvache Gardenia parfum has positively nuclear power so in keeping with the mindset of the era when my version was formulated!

This perfume is now marketed as "Gardenia 33".

Jungle Gardenia is the first perfume that entered my consciousness, probably because every TV game show in the 1950's and 1960's offered it as a conslation prize. Big deal, everyone in our neighborhood had a gardenia bush, they were practically weeds, and I was too busy being a semi-flower child to wear anything as old as JG -- it was over 30 and we weren't supposed to trust anything over 30! Now that I am over 30 myself and have moved beyond those forgotten and mosttly unlamented "with it" perfumes of my teen years I can finally appreciate the purest gardenia fragrance ever made. This is the scent of a summer night down South: when the heat quickens the pulse and thickens the blood. It is that moment when sensuality overcomes and you must surrender to your passion. JG is 80 years old now but she is no old lady, she's a hot mama. May we all be as seductive in our eighth decade.

Imagine my surprise when a search for my beloved vintage stuff turned up a living Tuvache company, and a scent called Gardenia 1933. I was even more surprised and delighted to find that, after many years of looking, Gardenia 1933 is the same fragrance as Jungle Gardenia. Like the original stuff, it's reasonable without cutting corners on quality. Hooray for all of us JG lovers.

We have ordered sample of vintage Jungle Tuvache Gardenia.. At first sniff I liked it a lot, so I have decided to wear it today. Firsts 5 minutes it smells excellent, I would say like a real meaty petals of gardenia at rain forest of south India..but then..then..I happened to enter subway ,and, OMG...I thought that somebody passed the wind,so i just started to look around in order to find out who may smell like rotten chinese dumpling stuffed with sour cabbage!
After while, I remained alone in whole subway car, but that awful odor stayed with me,I smelled my wrist, just in case and realized that it is actually my Tuvache Cardenia changed its beautiful chords of music to unpleasent simple melody !!!

I love Gardenia, but not this time, not today, not during gray winter day. It might be wonderful for summer, but I am not sure if I am ready to survive one more #day of sour dumplings#.

I loved this perfume. It was, for me, appropriate any time, any place, any season. I have yet to find a gardenia fragrance that compares to the original, unique "Jungle Gardenia" blend. I'm currently using Annick Goutal 'Gardénia Passion. It is pleasant, but bears no resemblance to Tuvache's Jungle Gardenia.'

This perfume is SO bound up in my past, as I'm sure it is for many others. I remember it as being one of the only gardenia perfumes that actually resembled the flower, and being from the South, I'm well accquainted with the scent of them. Yes, it was reformulated a few times - unsuccessfully, I might add. The only way to get the real thing is to go on EBAY or AMAZON, and even then you risk getting a bottle that has gone bad. The best ones that I've found are the ones from earlier vintages called Pure Perfume or Skin Perfume. Also, I've had luck with the ones from Yardley of London - these are the bottles that say "A fragrance of subtle intrigue". It's also good to ask the seller if they have sniffed the bottle - it's sometimes better to get a bottle that's been opened and confirmed good than to get an unopened one that has gone bad - these sellers don't always want to give refunds. As for the recent remakes that are available from the Vermont Country Store and Timeless Perfumes, they are absolutely nothing like real Jungle Gardenia. The one from Vermont smells alarmingly like Dawn dishwashing liquid. As for Timeless Perfumes, they claim to have the formula and be the only authorized maker of this perfume. That may be, but I've had two different bottles from them, one an eau de toilette and the other an eau de parfum. The parfum is a very thick, powdery perfume smelling nothing like a gardenia or even a white flower, much less Jungle Gardenia. The toilette was a very acid,chemical bitter green and at the same time bland concoction. A very cheaply made synthetic product. I actually called them to get my refund and was asked why I didn't like it, so I explained that it didn't smell anything remotely like the original JG or like a gardenia. The man said they follow the formula exactly, whereupon I explained that just because a formula says it has orange blossom or gardenia in it doesn't mean that it's going to smell the same every time you make it - it all depends on the quality of these ingredients as well as where in the world they came from, especially if your are using naturals. Since gardenia is almost always synthetic in these kinds of perfumes, it is unlikely that they would have access to the original Tuvache gardenia molecules, as they are probably not even legal anymore. This formula also used musk, which was most likely originally a nitro musk - these are also no longer used. If you smell synthetic anything from three different companies you'll get three different smells. I asked the man if he had ever smelled the original JG, and he said no. The best reformulation that I have smelled is from Tuvache.com. They call it Gardenia 1933. It is slightly lighter than the original, but smells very similar. Some one over there was more accquainted with the real thing. I've not tried the remake from Scentmatchers, but perhaps someday.I've also tried the Fragrance Shop's replication and it's pretty good, but the one from Tuvache.com/Hypoluxe is better. On an interesting note, the Fragrance Shop also makes something called True Gardenia that really smells like a gardenia in many ways. It's really worth a try for anyone looking for such a thing.

In the sixties, my uncle was in grad school and got a whiff of a perfume he was determined to buy for his wife. He followed the woman wearing it until he caught up with her and learned it was Jungle Gardenia. My mother bought some for us,too, and it was truly wonderful. Unfortunately, I was too young to realize how strong it was and wore too much to school and heads turned from everywhere. I went to the restroom and tried to wash it off, but it was in the pores of my skin by then and washing didn't help much. I had a rather embarrassing day and learned an important lesson.
